As many of you know, the late Hubert Lam was a lifelong advocate of continuing education in the field of esthetics. After his sudden death in 2008, his widow Pat and daughter Lara, owners of Skin Care Consultants, created the Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship in loving memory in order to keep his mission to educate the spa industry on the forefront. We had an overwhelming number of applications submitted for this scholarship, and thank all who entered their essays about why postgraduate education is so important for personal growth in the esthetic industry.
I am pleased to announce that the winner of this scholarship is Rachel Bradshaw of Haiku, Hawaii. Pat and Lara will acknowledge Rachel at Face & Body Northern California’s Networking Luncheon on July 17 in San Jose, California. Her scholarship includes admission to the Face & Body Northern California 2010 Advanced Education Conference Program andNetworking Events, as well as the two-day expo hall and Supplier Classes, plus $500 toward travel expenses to the show July 17–19, 2010.We invite you to read Rachel’s winning essay, which is a sidebar to this month’s Reflections column.
